  Does Gold Keep up in Hyperinflation  
Inflation is anatural consequence of loose government monetary policy. If those policies get too loose, hyperinflation can occur. As gold investors,we'd like to know if the precious metals would keep pace in this extreme scenario. Hyperinflation is an extremely rapid period of inflation, but when does inflation (which can be manageable) cross the line and become out-of-control hyperinflation? PhilipCagan, one of the very first researchers of this phenomenon, defines hyperinflation as "an inflation rate of 50% or more in a single month, "something largely inconceivable to the average investor.

All Paper is STILL a short position on gold 
The gold derivatives pyramid is a vigorous free market creature. It cannot be put down with a simple declaration that the paper is no longer redeemable in gold, as governments did with currency. It is a short selling scheme that has become a trap from which few short sellers will escape

November 15, 1923: The End of German Hyperinflation 
On 15 November 1923 decisive steps were taken to end the nightmare of hyperinflation in the Weimar Republic: TheReichsbank, the German central bank, stopped monetizing government debt, and a new means of exchange, theRentenmark, was issued next to thePapermark (in German:Papiermark). These measures succeeded in halting hyperinflation, but the purchasing power of thePapermark was completely ruined.

DERIVATIVES – A RECIPE FOR DISASTER SYSTEMIC COLLAPSE
Gambling is according to Wikipedia the wagering of money (or something of value) on an event with an uncertain outcome. Three elements are required for gambling, Consideration, chance, and prize. Thus, you make a bet and if you are lucky you win a prize but you can also lose it all. Gambling has been around for thousands of years and maybe longer. The first 6-sided dice dates back 3000 years. Eventually gambling became more organised as casinos were established. The first well known casino was s

How Will Gold Prices Behave During The Next Economic Crisis
This report was originally published by Brandon Smith at Alt-Market.com It is generally well known in economic circles and in the general public that precious metals, including gold, tend to be the go-to investment during times of fiscal uncertainty. There is a good reason for this. Precious metals have foundation qualities that provide trade stability; these include inherent rarity (rather than artificially engineered rarity such as that associated with cryptocurrencies), tangibility (you can

MOPE; The Government Will Never Let It Happen …
How often have you heard the phrase “the government will never let it happen”? It almost doesn’t matter what the topic is you are talking about, nothing “bad” can ever really happen …or so it is thought. The reason of course is because we are so many years into “MOPE” (management of perspective economics). No matter what has happened in the past, the media, Wall Street, and the government have constantly spun the narrative to lead the “perspective”. MOPE has been with us for such a long time, it

SOCIALISM – A GUARANTEED ROUTE TO HYPERINFLATION
Gold is hated by governments around the world because it reveals their deceitful actions in totally destroying the economy. It is not an accident that gold is the only money which has survived for 6,000 years. Gold is the only money that tells the truth. And gold is nature’s money which means it cannot be destroyed and it cannot be manufactured. This is why governments cannot live with gold as money for more than short periods. Because over time governments always spend more than the country ear

Stock Market Volatility Attributed to 'Shenanigans'
Back in January, I discussed the likelihood that global equity markets were approaching simultaneous tipping points beyond which legions upon legions of GenX-ers and Millennials would be thrown to the wolves by failing to recognize the financial mania engulfing them. I alluded to it being "Time for the Beast to Exhale," and within a few days, my volatility trade (UVXY) exploded to the upside as the "beast," better known as the global stock market ascent, finally exhaled and fell 3,300 Dow Jones

The True Meaning of Bitcoin's 'Success'
In the year 301 AD, the Roman unit of barter was the denarius, which had originally been 95% pure silver when introduced by Augustus at the end of the first century BC but by the time of Diocletian's rule, it had moved to 50,000 denarii to a pound of gold. Ten year later, it took 120,000 denarii to buy a pound of gold and by 337, that figure was 20,000,000. What had occurred in a mere 400 years was that a slow and agonizing erosion in the purchasing power of the Roman currency accelerated to ful

Stumbling Into the Bubble Zone
Bubbles are a fact of financial life! We know about the Dutch Tulip Bubble and the English South Sea bubble.  Silly – right?  They couldn’t happen in this modern age! Think again! Consider the following examples, a few of many that could be shown. Amazon, Apple and Bitcoin. Amazon, Apple, Bitcoin and other stocks show vertical rises – classic bubble behavior.  They might implode soon or their prices could rise even higher.  There are few limits on crazy price moves and central bank currency p

Gold And Silver: Something Different Is Occurring - Dave Kranzler
JP Morgan, at least according to the daily Comex warehouse report, added over half a million ozs of silver to its “historic” stash of silver at the Comex: TF Metals Report. It would be even more interesting to see an actual independent accounting of that specific metal which would track the serial numbers on the bars to the legal owner of title. I’ve been hedged in my mining stock portfolio since early September. The signal for me to hedge is the reliable Comex bank “net short” posi

Plan For Run On The Pound
Run On The Pound ? Jeremy Corbyn Says Should Plan For – Right to plan for ‘run on pound’ if Labour wins says Corbyn and Labour party  – British pound already down 20% since Brexit, collapse already in play – Run on the pound likely due to Labour’s ‘command economy’ approach – Collapse in Sterling would undermine UK financial system – Portfolios holding sterling and related assets would be significantly affected – Pension funds and property the most likely to get hit by run on the pound – Gold to

WAKE UP AMERICA – THE DOLLAR IS GOING TO ZERO
For news to be read and understood by a great number of people, it must be simple, sensational and forgettable. Most individuals are not interested in “heavy” news or complicated issues. Just compare television and newspapers today to say 50 years ago. At that time, newspapers had very few pictures but instead covered serious matters with in depth analysis. Same with television. In the 1960s there was serious news and many programmes which raised important issues in society or politics, which ma

Armstrong Logic
By Bill Holter  I had not planned on penning a public article today but my plans were changed by Martin Armstrong as he again is busy attempting to rewrite history.  He is again trying to scare people away from their only financial hurricane insurance, gold ...why?  Any thinking person knows a credit disaster is coming.  Heck, even he has called for a pending financial disaster himself...but gold is not a safe harbor "this time"?  As a reminder of past fallacy, Mr. Armstrong wrote back in Septem

The Swamp Strikes Back
On August 21st many Americans witnessed the moon cast a historic but short-lived shadow across the United States. One day later, President Trump reversed his previously stated position on the 16 year old Afghan War, thereby eclipsing the possibility that the United States would finally come to its senses and rethink a failed strategy that is likely to fail for years, perhaps decades, to come. The abrupt change, in what had been a central plank in candidate Trump's appeal to voters thirsting for

  HUBRIS KILLS WHILST GOLD PROTECTS 
Hubris is a deadly sin. It is an arrogance and conceit of the highest degree that eventually leads to failure. As we reach the final stages of the current economic cycle, hubris is prevalent everywhere. Central bankers and bankers believe that they can continue to create wealth by printing and borrowing money. Since it has worked so well for 100 years in this latest cycle, why can’t it continue? The laws of nature can’t be set aside Throughout history, governments have attempted to set aside th

IT WILL ALL GO HORRIBLY WRONG
IT WILL ALL GO HORRIBLY WRONG By Egon von Greyerz To own gold is not climbing a wall of worry. For anyone who understands the problems that the world is now facing, physical gold ownership gives peace of mind and the best insurance that money can buy. So why is less than 0.5% of world financial assets invested in gold and gold stocks? There are several reasons for this. Firstly, 100 years of massive credit expansion and money printing have mainly inflated the asset classes that investors underst
